Welcome to our first attempt at a public/community list for game play organizing and coordination. The purpose of this list is to help people coordinate with others about what games they would like to play and when.

There is tons of open gaming with a game lending library including additional Play to Win games, boardgame, RPG events, and miniatures, but we hope this geeklist is useful as a place where people can connect to set up games in advance.These games are not official KingCon events. For official events please check the website www.kingcon.ktabs.ca.

Maybe you're looking for:
- A high player count?
- An epic long game?
- Something heavy?
- A specific game you've been wanting to play, or players to fill a game you're bringing?
- Maybe you just like to be organized,
- Or like many in our hobby, you tend toward the introverted or shy side and feel much more comfortable connecting online first, rather than approaching new people at the table.

Any of those is a great reason to use this list!

How do you do it?
1. Scan through the list for games you might like.
2. Comment on the game listing (not the comments for this list itself - that's the comments at the very bottom, if you have any questions about how this works) if you're interested, or interested in another session of the same game.
3. Add an item for a game you want to play that's not listed, or full.
- copy the info below
- click Add Item near the top of this header post
- choose the boardgame you want to play
- paste the info, and fill it out
- submit the entry, and it's there for others to join!

To keep things organized, if you're adding a game item please also copy in and fill out the following information:

Player slots available: Minimum/Maximum/Preferred - don't forget to include yourself in the player count!
Players: yourself and fill them in as people join so it's obvious how many are left
Length: how long will it take to play, and include the rules teach if you're taking new players or need to set it up. Overestimate - games play much slower with new players at Cons.
Preferred time/day: be as specific/vague as you want; as people reply, you can work out a definitive timeslot
I'm bringing the game: yes (you're bringing it) or no (you're looking to play someone else's copy)
Expansions/variants: if any
Experience level: are newbies welcome? Only experienced players?
General notes: if there are any other things you want to mention, like where you're planning to meet up at the set time?

If you click on Subscribe to this geeklist, you'll get a BGG notification every time someone adds/updates/comments on an item. Or you can subscribe to just the item for games you're involved with.

And as a courtesy, make sure you let the game runner know if your plans change, so you don't keep the other gamers waiting.

And don't overschedule yourself - you don't want to keep people waiting on your next game too often. And don't forget to factor in time for eating!

Have fun, and see you at KingCon in July!

Thanks to MaltmanJ for the support and guidance on setting up this list. This list comes out of experiences with a similar list that helps people schedule games at www.breakoutcon.com in Toronto in March.

I have added this game for Paul K Smith to help get the info out to people who may want to join. This game is included in the KingCon events under Miniatures Games. Please sign up on the website if you are interested in joining this game.

https://kingcon.ktabs.ca/event/timetripper/

~Kim~

Player slots available: up to 6 players
Players:
Paul
Length: 3 hours
Preferred time/day: Saturday, July 13th. 1pm to 4pm.
I'm bringing the game: Yes
Expansions/variants: This game has been adapted from a board game to miniatures play.
Experience level: No experience required!

Can you get our Trippers home as they move thru Time and Relative Dimensions in Space? They are trapped in in a time/space warp.

In July 2006 while on operations in Kandahar province a fire team of Princess Patricia's Candian Light Infantry (PPCLI) became separated from the main group. In an intense firefight their radio was damaged. The Canadians were able to take cover in a small walled enclosure and began to weigh their options.

A search of partially collapsed buildings revealed a collection of old Soviet equipment dating from their doomed occupation of the land. The local villagers threw nothing away. Zapper Smith, the intrepid radio tech thought he might be able to pull something together. As the Taliban initiated their next assault, the radio commence to sound static and their was a sudden blue flash. After the flash dissipated, it was clear, as it was with Dorothy when she said, "Toto, I've a feeling we're not in Kansas anymore."

Can you cope with Roman Legionnaires? Or for that matter Zombies, Nazis, a Dragon, a T-Rex. Your options are limited and you are running low on ammunition.
